Art Blocks for Ghana and HoneyB

Our friend, Margaret Wuller has been working day and night on a non-profit project of hers (& Rachel Tiep-Daniels) "ArtBlocks for Ghana" to pay for boarding school costs for 13 orphaned children in Ghana. These kids used to be in an orphanage together until it closed. They are now spread out among several villages. Rachel and Margaret visited them all in November 2010. It is their goal to set up scholarships to get a roof over the children's heads and an education.

They have commissioned 200 animation artists and professional illustrators to create original artwork on a wooden panel which they will auction on Ebay in March 2011. Artists are from studios like Dreamworks, Pixar, BlueSky, Sony, ILM, Disney & Marathon Media in France. There will be an L.A. Art Exhibit Fundraiser to promote the auction and the artwork on March 12 at Gallery Nucleus. The artwork will be hung from March 9 - 14th and open to the public.
And HoneyB will be there! We have donated a couple Market Totes filled with HoneyB shirts to be silently auctioned off. Please come and see the stunning works by all these amazing artists and maybe have a little auction fun.

So many different styles. The creativity is mind blowing.
